Tom Paxton has become a voice of his generation, addressing issues of injustice and inhumanity, laying bare the absurdities of modern culture and celebrating the tenderest bonds of family, friends, and community.
In describing Tom Paxton's influence on his fellow musicians, Pete Seeger has said: "Tom's songs have a way of sneaking up on you. You find yourself humming them, whistling them, and singing a verse to a friend. Like the songs of Woody Guthrie, they're becoming part of America."
He has performed thousands of concerts around the world; that fans still enjoy his work is a testament to the enduring power of modern standards like "The Last Thing On My Mind," "Ramblin' Boy," "Bottle Of Wine," "Whose Garden Was This?," "Goin' To The Zoo" and "The Marvelous Toy." Paxton's songbooks, critically acclaimed children's books, award-winning children's recordings, and a catalog of hundreds of songs (also recorded by many renowned artists including Willie Nelson, Placido Domingo, Paul Simon, Townes Van Zandt and Tiny Tim), all serve to document Tom Paxton's career.
Winner of the Grassy Hill Kerrville New Folk songwriter contest, the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival, and others, Daniel Boling shares experiences from a life well-lived in three countries and seven states. This balladeer/songwriter with the friendly tenor brings his well-crafted story songs to happy audiences throughout the U.S. and in Europe in over one hundred shows a year, from House Concerts and listening rooms to major festivals. Daniel is also a member of the iconic 1960s folk trio The Limeliters.
Born into a traveling Air Force family, he later worked as a National Park Ranger (yes, the gun-toting kind) and as a Criminal Investigator for the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. He started touring full-time at 50, when most guys are planning their retirement.
Daniel's songs tell interesting stories about a variety of characters, including himself. He plays guitar and banjo with a deft fingerpicking style that always enhances the stories, and a bit of harmonica into the bargain. His clear tenor draws positive comparisons to John Denver and Pete Seeger, and like Pete, Daniel is happiest when his audience sings too!
Every song on Daniel's 2023 release New Old Friends was written with Tom Paxton, who sings on five of them. Daniel was instrumental in luring Tom out of semiretirement to join us in New Mexico!
